Pare rind from 2 quarts ripe cucumbers, cut in slices crosswise, and then stamp out centers, making rings. Cover with Cold water, add 1 teaspoon soda and let stand over night. Next morning drain, cover with cold water in which 2 tablespoons alum have been dissolved and boil 10 minutes. Strain, cover again with cold water, add 1 tablespoon ginger, boil 15 minutes. Drain, measure water and discard. Measure as much vinegar as there was water and to each quart vinegar add 3 pounds granulated sugar 1/4 cup whole cloves and 1/4 cup stick cinnamon. Add fruit and boil until clear.

Watermelon rind, cut in strips, may be used instead of cucumber.
